Sammy's Famous Corned Beef: "Mmmm...darn good reuben if you ask me" Pittsburgh Restaurant Tip by RblWthACoz

Pittsburgh Restaurants: 131 reviews and 188 photos

Is it famous because they say so, or is it famous because it deserves to be? Well you're the only judge that maybe you should try it yourself.

You can get several different sandwiches here at Sammy's, but the one I like best is their special...basically a reuben done very well. What? You don't know what a reuben is? Well don't google it! Just go try it.
